Overview of the Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery Procedure
At Blaine Plastic Surgery, we are committed to helping our patients gain self-confidence and a sense of well-being from looking, feeling, and functioning at their very best. Whether you are a new mom, or have kids who have now “left the nest,” every mom deserves a chance to find the best version of herself.
A Mommy Makeover is a highly customizable combination of surgical procedures aimed chiefly at restoring damaged or lax muscle, skin and tissue of the abdomen and breasts. While the breasts and abdomen are typically of greatest concern post-baby, oftentimes procedures aimed at enhancing the face and thighs are often included as well!
Who better than a fellow mom to custom tailor and perform your Mommy Makeover? A mother of three herself, Dr. Blaine thoroughly understands the physical changes exacted upon women and also the deeply emotional journey surrounding pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and motherhood.
As every pregnancy is different, every body is different and everyone’s body concerns are different. Your Mommy Makeover will be individually tailored to YOU. A typical Mommy Makeover may include:
Post-pregnancy, many women find they suffer from varying degrees of diastasis recti – a separation of the large parallel bands of muscles that meet in the middle of the abdomen. It is particularly distressing to women because despite working hard at losing the baby weight, the abdomen can appear unchanged and resistant to any and all diet and exercise. You may be back to pre-pregnancy weight but unable to comfortably wear the same clothes. At the extreme, a diastasis can even be connected to abdominal and back pain.
A Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) repairs these separated muscles and removes any excess fat and skin creating an abdominal profile that is smoother, flatter, and firmer.
Liposuction is often performed on the flanks at the time of an abdominoplasty to further improve abdominal and waist contour. While this gratis liposuction is limited to a patient’s flanks, it is very common amongst patients to have additional areas treated at the same time as their flanks including the inner and outer thighs, arms, chin, bra rolls, upper and lower back, and love handles.
Breast lift and augmentation
A Breast lift does exactly that! This procedure lifts the breast, eliminates excess skin, tightens up loose skin, and restores a higher, youthful, perkier, and natural breast position. In addition to the aesthetic result, patients report functional improvements to their lifestyle such as greater comfort in bras and clothing, ease in exercise, and better maneuverability in day to day functions.
An augmentation via implants or fat transfer will restore breast volume loss after post pregnancy weight fluctuation, help patients achieve a more rounded and fuller breast shape, and improve any pre-existing breast size asymmetry. Many women who had implants before pregnancy may experience changes in their breasts post-pregnancy and may seek a revision or decide to change the size or shape of their implants.
We recognize patients can be hesitant to bring up intimate issues, but there’s no doubt these concerns can have a major impact on a woman’s physical and emotional health. Viveve is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that adds no downtime onto a patient’s recovery and works to treat stress urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, vaginal atrophy, and vaginal dryness. This single treatment utilizes collagen-cooled radiofrequency, and even as a stand-alone treatment, it requires no anesthesia and no patient downtime.
Surgical and non-surgical modalities can be united during your procedure to not only re-contour your shape but rejuvenate skin tone and texture to diminish stretch marks, crepiness, and cellulite. Cellfina, BodyTite, and Fractora are a few other commonly added procedures that serve to further enhance the results of your Mommy Makeover without any additional downtime.
